EOTD: Wearable Turquoise

I feel like turquoise doesn't always look good on me, but this look turned out pretty. I think it has to do with the brown in the crease. I put some mascara primer on my lashes today, and it really made my lashes look nice I think.

Here is what I did: 

1. I wet my brush, and applied a medium-dark, aqua-blue with a golden sheen to my lids.

2. Medium, matte tan in the crease

3. Dark, matte brown in the outer 1/3 of the lid, outer part of the crease, and the lower lash line. I tried to stay away from the tear duct, so my eyes would look more open.

Pretty easy look. It was a nice day time look, and the pop of turquoise kept it looking summery to me.

Here is what I did:

1. Frosty, purply pink on the lid

2. Shimmery orange in the crease

3. Frosty warm brown, in the outer v, outer crease, and lower lash line

4. Matte, pinky brown to blend out the lower lash line

I think it's a fun summertime look.

Ride or Die Tag by Jaclyn Hill

I just saw this tag, and I knew I had to do it. I tag you to do it too.

1. Primer: Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel: I like this primer because it makes the foundation last a long time. It helps the foundation go on smoothly.

2. Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Dry Skin: My skin has changed to dry as I've gotten older. I like the way the foundation goes on my skin.

3. Concealer: Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Concealer: This was hard for me to choose because I feel like I haven't really found my favorite concealer yet. I chose this one because it is the one I've used the most.

4. Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent: I like this powder because it isn't cakey on my skin. 

5. Under eye setting powder: I don't have a specific powder for that. I just put my powder everywhere. I don't use a separate powder.

6. Blush: The Balm Hot Mama: I love this blush because it is a pretty coral/peachy with gold shimmer. I think it suits my coloring.

7. Highlight: The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer: This is so pretty and natural. A pretty golden glow. I love it. I feel like I don't need another highlighter.

8. False Lashes: I have never worn that. 

9. Mascara: I love Maybelline The Rocket. I need to go get another one because I've been using other mascaras, and they just aren't as good. It has made me miss The Rocket. 

10. Palette: Stila In the Light: I love my palettes. It is hard to choose just one. I chose this one because I love the 2nd top color, Kitten. It also has a matte brown, a darker matte brown, a matte black, a matte cream, a shimmery gold. Just a lot of colors that are basic. I don't have to think about what to wear with this palette.

11. Lipstick: Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti: I like how these feel on my lips. And they give a nice shine, with just a hint of color. This one is sort of orangey.

12. Liquid Lipstick: I don't wear liquid lipstick. I know it is very popular right now. I just haven't bought any. It looks to me like it is so drying on people's lips. It doesn't look comfortable.

13. Lip Gloss: Buxom Lip Gloss in Creamsicle. I chose this as my favorite because it smells like vanilla, and it is cooling on the lips. It feels minty. I think it plumps the lips, but I'm not sure. It doesn't sting.

14. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy: I love the fruity and sweet smell it has. 

EOTD: Everyday for Work or School

This is what I did.

1. Shimmery champagne in the center of the lid.

2. Frosted peach in the inner 1/3 of the lid and tearduct.

3. Shimmery dark brown on outer 1/3 of lid and outer 2/3 of lower lash line.

4. Frosted, metallic warm toned taupe in the crease to blend out dark brown color.

5. Brown eye liner on upper lash line. I did a slight flick, but this is unnecessary.

EOTD: Sparkly Purple Eyes

This is what I did:

1. Frosty, pink on my lid

2. Frosty, eggplant on my crease and outer lid. I blended it, so there were no harsh lines.

3. I mixed the pink and the eggplant, and put it on my lower lash line.

4. Glittery mauve I patted on the lid for the glitter effect.
